A memorable day in Ranga Mati Village in the Bankura district of West Bengal. We spent the whole day with the Santhal people and children. Great hospitality, impeccable manners, warmth that touches the heart, respect for culture and tradition – we simply got overwhelmed.

They send some part of their meager income to these hostels who take care of the children. Some of these hostels don’t even have concrete roof or electricity and kids sleep on the floors. But I told them stories of great men like Ishwar Chandra Vidyasagar who had a poverty-stricken childhood.

We are able to donate list of books and note books to all the students in the village this time. Encouraged them to study well and we promised them that if they work hard, we are there to support them all the way. We will send good books to help them build their library. And we will go back again next year, to see those sparkling eyes and bright smiles!

Many Thanks to all our well wishers and friends who has made this possible.
